Momo is one street side snack that has taken over the world of Indian street food by storm. What once used to be just about chaats, chole kulche, pav bhaji or noodles, India’s street food repertoire now offers a variety of momos in many parts of the country. All thanks to the immense fan-following it has. After all, there's something about those juicy, soft, juicy and absolutely delectable momos that make us drool over them every single time. The popularity of the Nepali dish is such that you will find at least one momo joint at every nook and corner of the country, especially in Delhi where momo is considered the most popular street food, giving a tough competition to the classic Dilli ki chaats.

Besides the classic steamed momo that comes with a host of stuffings ranging from veg, paneer to chicken, one can find tandoori momo, butter chicken momo, schezwan momo and so on. Yes, you read that right. One such unique version of momo is kurkure momo – sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
